The Settlers is the third book in Moberg's series about a group of Swedish emigrants to America in the 19th century. As the others, it's a beautifully written book, that makes us feel the trials and tribulations of the emigrants in a plentiful but hard and often dangerous land, their courage and tenacity. Karl Oskar, Kristina, Robert, Ulrika, are vivid and believable characters that we feel we come to know and love. I would still like to be able to read it in Swedish... There is still one fourth part, that I hope to read soon.
